The girls in the streading bistro were working very hard with excellent customer service! The food was excellent, I had a chicken panini and my husband had a hot salmon salad. The food was reasonably priced.

We popped in here after a long day just wanting some nice food, and we weren't disappointed. It is a lovely little place with lovely people and the food is great too. Who would of thought that haggis would go well with Nachos?!

Husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal. We have been coming here every holiday. Each time the food has excelled. Staff friendly and helpful. Toilets are none of the above and need serious TLC. We will continue to eat here as we love the menu.
